About me

Whatever is going on for you, I'd like to offer you a supportive, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings.   There is no subject that cannot be discussed within the safety and confidentiality of the counselling session. Even when you don't know what is at the heart of how you feel, sharing what you are feeling is a really good place to start. 

I'm known to most people as Charlie, and I have worked full-time as a counsellor  since 2014.  I am experienced in working with adults and young people, both one to one and facilitating therapeutic groups. Trained as a Humanistic, Person Centred Counsellor, I also draw upon other counselling theories and creative approaches as required.  The main emphasis of my approach is on the trusting, non-judgemental relationship between client and therapist, enabling you to feel comfortable to share what's going on for you.

I am currently offering face to face, telephone and Zoom appointments, I am able to offer evening appointments online.  In order to benefit from the telephone or zoom sessions, you will need to be able to find a private space where you can talk openly for the duration of the appointment.

You can email me or give me a call on 07595 532316 to arrange a time to discuss your situation. We can arrange a free first session to help you decide whether I'm the right counsellor for you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
